VidCon has already released their first round of featured creators for the 2018 VidCon! Included are some regulars like Benny and Rafi Fine (Fine Bros), ThreadBanger, Hannah Hart, and Joey Graceffa. There are also some new people who we are very excited to see: Elijah and Christine (remember last year’s fiasco?) and Safiya Nygaard.
There has been some talk about who is and isn’t invited to be featured at VidCon. There have been some #bitter tweets about not being invited year after year.
Welp… there’s always next year I guess? https://t.co/QZtt7v2BzM

VidCon coordinators have said that they try to get the people that are popular but there are many issues that come up. Either they took too long to respond, intentionally create issues (*cough* Logan), are not available, or they don’t see enough of a demand to pay for that creator’s accommodations (flights, hotels, and security).
This is only the first round of featured creators, so we are expecting more of our faves to be announced soon!
